CATALOGUE 

of the 

NATIONAL FILM LIBRARY 

of Sixteen Millimeter Motion Pictures 



FIRST EDITION

FOREWORD 

The National Film Library was established to provide a free source 
of films for use in sixteen millimeter motion picture projectors in homes, 
schools, churches and clul)s of six Southern California Counties, namely : 
Los Angeles, Ventura. Santa Barbara, Orange, Riverside and San Ber- 
nardino. In this territory there are approximately 30.000 sixteen milli- 
meter projectors. 

Hitherto the use of these projectors has been restricted largely be- 
cause of the high cost of buying or renting films. Now, however, through 
the co-operation of public spirited advertisers, the National Film Library 
is able to loan free to projector owners a large numl>er of desirable films. 

This catalogue is furnished without charge to all members of the 
Library. It includes complete descriptions of the films in the Library 
at the time it was issued. At regular intervals it will be supplemented 
by special bulletins containing reviews of films recently added to the 
Library. Watch for these supplements. A perusal of the catalogue will 
reveal the fact that the films are diversified in character so that subjects 
may be selected which will be suitable for all occasions and all tastes. 

These films are not advertising films as the term is ordinarily used. 
They include educational, travelogues, sports, dramas, religious, comedies 
and other subjects. The advertising is confined to announcements at the 
beginning or end of each reel. Some of the films in the Library were 
produced especially by the advertiser, in which case they must meet 
with the approval of the Library officials, who require that all films be 
either entertaining, educational or both. 

No equipment or commodity of any nature will be offered for sale 
Iiy the National Film Library or its employees. The cost of the service 
IS defrayed entirely by the advertisers who have generously sponsored 
films for the entertainment and education of Library members. 

As more and more advertisers learn of the benefits of the service 
it is expected that hundreds of additional films will be added to the 
Library. In time the organization will be extended to wider territories 
until its coverage becomes national. 



APPRECIATION 

Following is a list of advertisers who, by their generous support, have 
made it possible for projector owners in Southern California to borrow 
desirable sixteen millimeter films without charge. It will, of course, be 
to the advantage of members to patronize these firms whenever possible 
and to mention the National Film Library when making purhases.

PARTICULARS CONCERNING 

THE NATIONAL FILM LIBRARY 
Which Are of Vital Importance 
to Every Advertiser and to Every 
Owner of a 16 Millimeter Projector 

The National P'ilm Library renders to projector owners a free bor- 
rowing service of sixteen millimeter films which is somewhat similar to 
the service which a pubHc library offers to readers of books. 

This has been made possible through the co-operation of a selected 
group of advertisers who have gone to considerable expense in order to 
provide, through this Library, a large number of diversified and desirable 
subjects. Because of this it is assumed that users of the Library will, 
whenever possible, give their support to the advertisers who are listed 
on pages 5. 6 and 7 of this catalogue, and whose names are mentioned on 
the films sponsored by them. 

It is also expected, in consideration of the value of this service, that 
those who use the Library will be glad to acquaint themselves with the 
rules and regulations governing the administration of the Library and 
will agree to abide by them. 

Under no conditions will the National Film Library sanction the use 
of its film in what is termed (or known to be) a "Toy Projector." As 
new makes of projectors are placed on the market they will be tested 
by officials of the Library and. if found suitable, will be approved. 

APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP 

Each applicant will be required to fill out a blank giving his name, 
address and occupation, names of four references, manufacturer's name 
and number of his projector and from whom purchased. The applicant 
will also be asked to sign an agreement to abide by the following rules : 

1. Films are to be used only in projectors approved by the 
National Film Library. 

2. Serious injury to a film while in the possession of a mem- 
ber is to be paid for by that member. 

3. If the film is withheld for more than a day, an overtime 
charge will be paid by the member. 

4. The member fills out and returns with each film a report 
giving the number of persons who have seen that film 
while it was in his possession. 

5. All transportation charges are to be paid by the member. 



REASONS FOR THESE REQUIREMENTS 

The reason why the Library requires that only approved projectors 
be used is for the protection of the films — which ultimately means the pro- 
tection of members' interests. 

With the ordinary use a certain amount of wear and tear on the films 
is inevitable. For such normal depreciation, members will not be held 
responsible. But if, through accident, carelessness or other causes, a 
film is damaged seriously, it is only right to expect that the cost of re- 
pairing the film should be met by the person who had it in his possession 
when the damage occurred. The standard charge for replacements is ten 
cents (10c) per foot, a minimum charge of $1.00. 

The purpose of the overtime charge is to keep as many films as 
possible available for the use of members. The charge made by the 
Library is a nominal one — twenty-five cents (25c) per reel per day. When 
films are taken or forwarded to a place some distance away from Los 
Angeles, ample time will be allowed for the delivery and the films must 
be returned the day following receipt so no overtime will be charged. 

The future success of the Library depends largely on the support of 
our advertisers. Reports giving the nurnbers of persons who view the 
films will be furnished to these advertisers so that they will know exactly 
what benefits they are obtaining. 

For the benefit of those who are not able or desirous of coming to 
the Library in person, a delivery and pick-up service has been provided. 
Members wall pay transportation charges both ways. Arrangements have 
been made whereby members will be given the benefit of exceptionally 
low transportation rates to all points in the six counties w^hich this 
Library will service. 

If desired, films may be returned to the Library by mail. For this 
purpose a convenient shipping sticker is enclosed in each film container. 

Films may be ordered by mail, telephone or telegraph, in which case 
alternate lists can be given. The Library reserves the right to substitute 
films deemed suitable in case the films ordered are in circulation. Mem- 
bers will, of course, pay all telephone and telegraph charges. 

For members who desire to have films at regular periods, the Library 
oflFers a special service to forward the films on these specified dates, 
eliminating the necessity of requesting film on each of these dates by 
the member. 

While every precaution will be taken to insure the arrival of the 
films at the specified time, the Library will not be responsible for un- 
avoidable delays. 

It is altogether conceivable that there will br times when manv. or 
even all of the films, will be in use at the same time. Under such con- 
ditions reservations for films will be accepted i": the order filed. 

CONVENIENCE OF LOCATION 

Whenever possible members are urged to visit the Librarv in person. 
Every effort has been made to maintain headquarters that are both 



attractive and convenient. They are located in the Richfield Building, 
close to the shopping and business districts of Los Angeles. MEMBERS 
MAY PARK THEIR CARS IN THE GARAGE OF THIS BUILDING 
FOR ONE ?IOUR WITHOUT CHARGE. PROVIDING THEY HAVE 
THEIR PARKING TICKETS VALIDATED BY THE LIBRARIAN. 
The entrance is at 555 South Flower Street, Los Angeles, California. 

MEMBERSHIP CARDS 

After fulfilling all requirements for membership, the applicant will 
be given a membership card. This card, or its serial number, must be 
presented to the Librarian whenever films are taken out. In case films 
are ordered by mail, phone or wire, it will only be necessary to give the 
serial number of the card so that the films may be charged properly. 

SUGGESTIONS WELCOMED 

We are especially desirous of receiving comments concerning our 
service and film from members of the Library. Impressions and sugges- 
tions expressed in writing will be particularly appreciated.

THE EPIC OF EVEREST 

Located in one of the most inaccessible corners of the world, Mount 
Everest, the highest mountain in the world, has for many years beckoned 
to adventurers. So far no one has succeeded in reaching its summit, 
29,145 feet (about 5^/2 miles high) and return alive. This epic tells the 
story of the most recent attempt, which ended in a tragedy when two 
young men, Mallory and Irvine, reached a point only 600 feet from the 
summit, where they were seen for the last time by other members 
of the party watching through telescopes. They failed to return, and a 
searching party, after desperate but fruitless efforts to locate them, was 
forced to go back without them. From the standpoint of scenic beauty 
this film can not be excelled. The photography is unusually good, and 
the story is told in a clear and dramatic way.

MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE 

For obvious reasons, Gibraltar, which has been a British fortress for 
centuries, has seldom been photographed from within. In this film, how- 
ever, the observer is taken right inside the rock itself and is shown sev- 
eral interesting views taken from the so-called "Forbidden Galleries." 

At Marrakesh, Morocco, the observer catches some intimate glimpses 
of Berber life — a life which has been practically untouched by European 
civilization. The personally conducted tour then brings us to Damascus, 
where we ride along the "Street Called Straight," which Saint Paul men- 
tions in the Bible. Here we see the bustling bazaars, the majestic mosques 
and the historic walls of the ancient city. We are then taken to Cairo and 
are shown the famous citadel and the Alabaster Mosque. Native artizans 
working with their quaint, primitive tools, camels with their proud heads 
held high, and boats with triangular sails gliding across the Nile, complete 
this interesting and instructive travelogue.

In the northern part of California, close to the Oregon Hne, is a region 
which in ages past was a veritable hell on earth. The volcanoes are all

ALASKAN ADVENTURES 

Three men, Art Young, champion archer; Captain Jack Robinson, in- 
trepid guide, and an unnamed camera man, journey into that part of 
Alaska where "the mountains are nameless and the rivers run God knows 
where." They have agreed to carry no weapons except bows and arrows 
and to kill for necessity only. Several fine closeups are shown of Rocky 
Mountain goats and also of the most elusive of all Alaskan animals, 
mountain sheep. A remarkable sequence shows Young stalking a moun- 
tain sheep and bringing it down with an arrow. Then follows a thrilling 
journey on a frail raft which hurtles down a raging torrent flowing north, 
presumably into the Arctics. Herds of caribou are shown. Young creeps 
up close to a gigantic moose and dispatches it with an arrow. By dog 
team the party crosses the snow covered wastes to the Yukon, where 
they are fortunate enough to witness a wonderful spectacle. 

Part two opens with a view of the Yukon River just as the ice is be- 
ginning to break up. For a mile wide and 2,000 miles long, the mighty 
river is one mass of crashing, swiftly moving, floating ice. Within a few 
hours the ice has been carried to the sea and a wonderful transformation 
from winter to summer scenery has taken place. A visit is paid to Mount 
Katmai, the largest active volcano in the world, and to the unique place 
known as the "Valley of Ten thousand Smokes." Next the adventurers go 
to Kodiak where they see several Kodiak bears catching salmon as they 
come up to the small streams to spawn. Young kills an enormous bear 
weighing 1200 pounds with his bow and arrows. One of the most fascinat- 
ing sport and travel pictures ever made.

TARPON FISHING IN FLORIDA. Of all fishes, the Florida Tar-

U. S. C. VS. NOTRE DAME, 1930 

Newsreels in which segregated snatches of action taken from football 
games are familiar to the public. This film is unique in that it presents all 
the important highlights of one complete game. The one chosen is the 
historic encounter between the University of Southern California and the 
last team which Knute Rockne coached at Notre Dame. Most of the views 
are long shots, giving the impression that the audience is witnessing the 
game from a point of vantage in the grandstand, but there are also a num- 
ber of good closeups. Line bucks, end runs, forward passes, punts and 
all the other plays that go to make an exciting encounter are portrayed 
with clearness and faithfulness. Anybody who likes to watch a football 
contest will enjoy this unusual film — and who doesn't like to witness a 
good game of football?

BALL AND BAT 

Many of the most popular sports enjoyed today are played with some 
variation of the ball and bat idea. Even handball comes in this classifica- 
tion, since the arm and hand of the player really constitutes a bat. This 
interesting sport picture shows selected action from a variety of athletic 
contests, among which are handball, baseball, cricket, tennis, golf, hurling 
and polo. Babe Ruth is shown knocking a home run. A slow motion scene 
shows Vincent Richards playing tennis. Glenna Collett, Walter Hagen 
and Jess Sweetzer represent the grand old game of golf. Polo is illustrated 
in both slow motion and regular camera speed, with Deveraux Milburn 
starring. This picture is obviously intended for lovers of sports and the 
great outdoors but even a hospital shut-in will enjoy the exciting scenes 
and instructive explanations.

engage in a spirited game of tennis. Few men can equal the skill of female 
polo players at Santa Barbara or the grace of Dorothy Foynton, 13-year- 
old diving champion. 

Boxing form is also clearly illustrated in this film. Among the boxers 
shown in action are Renault, Dave Shade and Gene Tunney. How Tunney 
developed his skill as a boxer is explained. 

Swimming form is explained graphically, by Gertrude Ederle. Ethelda 
Bleibtrey swims vv-ithout using her feet. A man with his feet and hands 
bound swims the length of a swimming pool. 

Tennis Form is made clear with motion pictures both at regular tempo

SWORD FISHING OFF CATALINA ISLAND 

Recognized as one of the largest and gamiest of fish, the sword fish is 
a worthy adversary for any angler. Dressed in sun helmets and outing

HISTORY OF BREAD 

Nothing comes closer to human life than bread, which undoubtedly 
is the oldest form of prepared food. This fascinating picture traces the 
history of bread from the days of the cave man to the modern scientific 
bakery. Bread is mentioned in Genesis, the first chapter of the Bible. In 
the days of Abraham grain was ground and was baked by artificial heat. 
Bible reference to "unleavened" bread proves that leavening was used in 
Lot's time. The picture also shows how bread was made by the early 
Egyptians, Greeks and Romans and also by our own grandmothers. Then 
it takes us into a modern bakery where evervthing is done with maximum 
efficiency, precision and sanitation bv means of scientific machinery. It 
brings out clearly why the bread made in this wav is so much more whole- 
some, nutritious and delicious than A\hcn made b}- old fashioned methods.

fifteen months old. The method of harvesting is extremely interesting. 
A special banana train carries the fruit to the seaport where the bananas 
are loaded aboard a steamer. The picture closes with human interest 
scenes showing children on the playground eating bananas and Boy Scouts

MAN VS. MACHINERY 

A newly married bride bakes biscuits. They arc so hard that her 
husband can't eat them. At the office that morning he is instructed to 
gather data concerning the manufacture of flour. He goes to a large 
flour mill and asks one of the officials for information. He is told about 
the various methods of harvesting and grinding wheat which have been 
used since biblical times. These methods are interesting and picturesque, 
but they lack the speed and the sanitary features of modern scientific 
milling. In order to get a clear idea of how flour is made today, the 
visitor is taken on a tour of the mill. 

All wheat is carefully graded and any that doesn't measure up to high 
standards is rejected. Samples of flour are made in a miniature mill and 
are tested by a skilled chemist. The accepted wheat is delivered in car- 
loads and is elevated to the top floor of the mill. Here it is freed from 
weeds, foreign grains, metal particles and other impurities by a series 
of ingenious machines. Then it is washed thoroughly. In producing flour 
the wheat passes through fifty grinding machines, each of which grinds it 
a little finer than the preceding one. While hubby is at the mill, wifie 
has learned how to bake biscuits and she has a fine batch ready for him 
when he gets home. Nothing is more interesting to people than the pro- 
cesses used for making things. This educational film is especially enter- 
taining, since it shows the manufacture of that most important ingre.dient 
from which the "stafif of life" is made.

to the modern, luxurious airliner, this film presents a clear picture of the 
progress which has been made in flying during the past quarter of a 
century. Remarkable views are shown of Wilbur and Orville Wright 
flying their first successful airplane at Le Mans, France, in 1908. Their 
plane weighed 620 pounds and was driven by a 25 horsepower motor. 
The first sustained flight of 2.17 miles was covered in 106 seconds. Among

To illustrate the war period of aviation's history, some thrilling air fights 
are photographed, including a plane falling in flames. Scenes from a 
modern aviation school are also shown. 

To bring aviation to its present stage of development, millions of 
dollars have been spent in research and experimental flying. Much of 
this money has been contributed by the oil industry. The Richfield Oil 
Company operates special trucks for servicing aircraft. One of them, 
piloted by "Richfield Red," is shown fueling the celebrated Goodyear 
blimp. The blimp lands and takes ofif again. Many different types of air- 
planes are illustrated, from the light sport model with removable wings 
for easy storage to the large Fokker airliner that seats 32 passengers. 
There are also several views of the Daniel Wahl 100 passenger flying 
boat. An autogyro aircraft, landing in a very small space, suggests that 
this type of flyer may be used in the future to avoid the necessity for large 
landing fields. 

That man is now a real master of the air is clearly illustrated in 
the last reel of this picture. Planes flying in formation go through some 
amazing maneuvers. Lindbergh himself performs stunts for the audience. 
The celebrated three Sea Hawks of the U. S. Navy also do their death- 
defying feats, looping, barrel-rolling and flying upside down in close for- 
mation. There is an unusual close-up in slow motion of a parachute 
jumper being pulled oflf the wing of a flying plane. Interior and exterior 
views of a modern airliner in flight and on the ground illustrates the 
speed and luxury of modern air travel.

FROM SAND TO SUDS 

Depicting the history of cleansing processes from the earliest times 
to the present, this film also includes a detailed study of modern soap 
making. The cave-man of 4,000 B. C. dressed in skins, cared little for 
cleansing processes. In 1500 B. C. sand and fruit juices were used for 
washing fabrics. Figures on a tomb at Thebes show that the Egyptians 
anointed their bodies with oil. A soap-maker's shop was found in the 
ruins of a Roman City, indicating that the Romans were the first to use 
soap. Modern hard soap was invented by La Blanc in 1791. Tallows, 
formerly used for making soap, have of recent years been replaced by 
vegetable oils, such as cocoanut oil and cottonseed oil. In the modern soap 
factory, these oils are carefully tested by chemists. We are taken for a 
tour of inspection through the White King Soap Company's plant, where 
the processes used in making granulated soap are first explained to us. 

Prior to 1900 clothes were easily washed because there were no 
automobiles to fill the air with soot and grease. This new kind of dirt

FOUR SEASONS 

A remarkable course in nature study, showing how a variety of 
Mother Earth's children behave at different seasons of the year. 

SPRING is the season of re-awakening — of birth and of new life. 
Pusseywillows push forth their furry paws, frog's eggs appear in quiet 
pools, where they soon hatch into pollywogs, snakes wriggle forth from 
their winter's hiding places, the woodchuck emerges from his burrow, 
robins feed their young and tiny chickens break through their shells. 
Many cute and interesting closeups are shown of various animal families, 
including baby chipmunks, a bear and her cubs, a bat family and a deer 
with tiny fawns. An exceptional shot shows a deer shedding its majestic 
antlers, leaving only flat disks where the horns break off. 

SUMMER! Now the antlers of the deer shown in the preceding reel 
begin to bud, growing with remarkable speed. Bees visit the flowers, gath- 
ering nectar and storing it in their marvelously constructed cells of wax. 
An interesting picture of a dish full of soap bubbles pressed downward 
with a pane of glass, shows the bubbles taking the form of hexagons, just 
as the cells of the beehive do. Various insects and animals are caught at 
their summer pastimes. Then there is a thunder storm, with the sky rent 
with rivers of dazzling lightning. A very unusual shot shows the top 
of the storm as it looks from a mountain summit above the clouds. 

AUTUMN. The bumble bee and other insects are hurrying to gather 
enough food to last through the approaching winter. Beavers, too, are 
busy, cutting down trees a foot thick and stripping them of their branches. 
The beaver sequence in this film is considered one of the most unusual 
animal pictures ever taken. Caterpillars are shown curling up the leaves 
and spinning themselves into their snug sleeping bags, after first taking 
the precaution to anchor the leaf firmly to the branch with silk so it will 
not drop when the other leaves fall. Now the antlers of the deer are fully 
grown. The thick fuzz which covered them in summer has been scraped 
off, the remnants of it hanging in unkempt streamers from the horns. 
Birds begin to migrate, the porcupine grows a coat of fur under its quills 
and the brown hare dons its camouflage of white fur so that it can better 
hide in the snow banks. 

WINTER. The first snowfall brings soft fluft'y crystals that are 
marvelously ornate and symetrical. Around the opening of the wood- 
chuck's home there are no tracks. An inquisitive human drives a stake so 
he can locate the place later. Then, when the snow is deep he returns 
,^ with pick and shovel to learn what has happened to Mr. Woodchuck.

NATURE'S REFRIGERANT 

At the beginning of this picture are some interesting scenes showing 
how ice is used in various industries, including dairying, fishing, packing 
lettuce for shipment and the florist business. Then follows some illum- 
inating material on scientific refrigeration in homes. A series of dia- 
grams, accompanied by action showing refrigerators in use, bring out with 
surprising clearness the principles of refrigeration and insulation. Charts 
made by automatic recording devices show interesting comparisons be- 
tween the temperature and humidity of a modern refrigerator as compared 
with a poor refrigerator and also with conditions in the outside air. The 
importance of proper insulation is illustrated. While essentially educa- 
tional in character, this film is interesting enough to be classed as enter- 
tainment. It also contains some valuable information concerning economy 
and food preservation which every housewife and every student of science 
will want to know.

MAN 

The human body is one of the most marvelous mechanisms in exist- 
ence. This exceptional film shows graphically and clearly how our won- 
derful human machine functions. It starts with a microscopic study of the 
ameba, the simple form of life, consisting of a single cell which can 
breathe, move, eat and digest food. How cells similar to the ameba which 
make up the human body are kept alive by the oxygen and food brought 
to them in the blood stream, is clearly explained by means of diagrams 
and motion photographs. The structure of the human ear and the prin- 
ciple by which men hear are lucidly presented, also the formation of the 
eye and the method by which visual impressions are carried to the brain. 
This is one of the most interesting educational subjects that has been 
produced. Everyone should see it.

EYES OF SCIENCE 

Of all the phenomena in the world nothing is more important or more 
interesting than light. Light has been the basis of many great scientific 
discoveries, practically all of which were built on observation and meas- 
urement. The purpose of this film is to show in an interesting way the 
methods used in manufacturing instruments for observation and measure- 
ment and the principles under which they operate. The picture shows 
how light rays are reflected by a mirror and refracted or bent by a prism. 
How a concave lens spreads the light rays apart and a convex lens brings 
them together is also shown. Then there is a diagram of the human eye 
showing how the images of objects are brought to a focus on the retina. 
The principle of the simple magnifying glass is explained and it is com- 
pared with a microscope that will magnify 2,000 times. The observer is 
taken to a factory where glass is made. The glass used for optical instru- 
ments is allowed to cool in the pot in which it was fused. 

In the second reel workmen are shown removing the glass from the 
pot. It breaks into pieces which are carefully inspected. Only one-third 
of the contents of the pot passes inspection. The selected pieces are heated 
again and are worked roughly into the form desired, after which they are 
ground, polished, centered and mounted. A picture is shown of a micro- 
scope used in 1870, similar to the one with which Van Leeuenhoek first 
discovered microbes. This is compared with the greatly improved micro- 
scope of today.

The third reel shows how a microscope is assembled. Several unusual 
optical instruments are exhibited, including a refractometer and colori-

projectors, both for "still" and motion pictures, is illustrated. Other com- 
monly known optical instruments are also shown, such as opera glasses 
and telescopes. Microscopes for various industrial purposes are featured. 
Among these are the microscopes for testing the structure of metals, the 
chemical microscopes used for observing crystals and similar objects 
and the microscopes used by physicians and biologists for studying germs. 
The film closes with some interesting microscopic studies of the beating 
heart of an embryonic chick which has been in the incubator only forty- 
eight hours, the blood circulation in a tadpole's tail and the moving 
macrophages or large blood cells from a tissue culture. While distinctively

take place. Volcanoes are among the most spectacular of the forces which 
change the earth's structure. Some astonishing views of volcanoes in 
eruption are shown, making you wonder how the camera man escaped 
with his life. One scene shows the havoc wrought by earthquakes. An- 
other depicts the devastating effects of floods. There are also several beau- 
tiful shots of enchanting waterfalls. Hot springs, geysers, glaciers, and 
ocean breakers are all pictured while at work remodelling Mother Earth's

natural pictures and diagrams. The picture then carries us to India where 
the Zebu, a white-haired kind of cattle is used as a beast of burden. The 
water buffalo serves a similar purpose in other parts of Asia. Several other 
hollow horned cattle are shown, including the American bison, the gnu 
from South Africa, and the giraffe. Then there are hoofed animals with- 
out horns, including the camel, the dromedary, the alpaca and the llama.

There are several close-ups of bees, illustrating how they gather honey 
from the flowers and then return to the hive, depositing their booty in the 
cells of the hive. To expedite the work of these useful insects, men start 
the hives with wax molds and the bees go on according to the plan pro- 
vided by the human masters. Honey is extracted with a centrifugal ma- 
chine. The most dramatic event in the life of the bee is when the swarm-

as a model illustrates how the rodents gnaw. Several remarkable views 
are presented of rodents in their native haunts. A snowshoe rabbit has 
exceptionally large feet to enable it to run on top of the snow. Tree squir- 
rels build nests, just like birds. A jumping mouse, or Jerboa, has legs like 
a small kangaroo. Rodents that live underground are great engineers as 
is shown by a diagram of a prairie dog's burrow 15 feet deep. One of the

cumulates and is packed into glacial ice. After a while it pulls away from 
the walls and a long crack called "bergschrund" develops. Slowly and 
relentlessly the ice moves down toward the valleys. A diagram illustrated 
how the flow of the Rhone Glacier was measured between 1872 and 1882 
by means of stakes driven in a line across the glacier. Explanations of the 
formation of various kinds of moraines, crevasses and seracs are given and

ing four husky youngsters lined up side by side on a branch. She takes 
great pains to treat them all impartially. This film is not only highly 
instructive but is also very good entertainment.

BIRDS OF PREY 

There are many varieties of flesh eating birds, several of which are in 
the cast of this film. The Kistrel, a European bird, corresponds to the 
American sparrow hawk. He has formidable claws and a wicked, hooked 
beak. Two hawks are shown fighting over the body of a small bird. Be- 
fore eating a bird, the hawk picks out all the feathers carefully. A view of 
a small hawk with a large rabbit illustrates that hawks often attack ani- 
mals considerably larger than themselves. Several of the larger varieties 
of birds of prey make their appearance. Among them are the ugly Euro- 
pean eared vulture, the Asian Lammergeier and the Andean condor which 
has a wing spread of nine feet and can fly as high as 29,500 feet. Most 
of these larger birds are menagerie specimens. The film closes with a 
picture of the great American Eagle, who always finishes what he starts. 
This picture is highly instructive as well as entertaining.

SINGING AND STINGING 

An intimate study of the life history and habits of the mosquito. A 
man finds mosquito eggs in a tub of stagnant water. He takes them to 
the laboratory and examines them under the microscope. The eggs are 
in clusters, forming rafts that float on the surface of the water. When 
ready to hatch the larvae break the caps from the bottoms of the eggs and 
dive head foremost into the water. The tiny wigglers breathe through their 
tails, which they place against the surface of the water. In about two 
weeks the larvae changes to the pupa stage. Close-ups of the mosquito's 
stinging apparatus and of its many lensed eyes are presented. Finally, by 
means of an experiment, the scientist shows how the mosquitoes in the 
wiggler stage may easily be destroyed by pouring oil on the surface ot 
the water. This shuts ofif the air supply and the wigglers drown. A very 
interesting and instructive scientific subject with a popular appeal.

MOLLUSCS 

The Molluscs include several sub-classifications, among which are 
Pelycy-Poda ("hatchet-footed") such as clams, oysters and mussels. The 
observer is first taken aboard a trawler where he sees oysters being gath- 
ered. The second class embraces the "head footed" or Cephal-poda, in-

is shown catching an octopus with his hands and turning it inside out. 
How the cuttlefish shoots out a spray of dark ink to confuse its enemies 
is illustrated. Another branch of the family is called "stomach-footed." 
or Gastro-Poda. Snails and slugs belong under this classification. Snails 
carry their homes on their backs and don't have to worry about paying 
rent. One remarkable view shows the crawling movements of a snail as 
seen by looking right through the snail's body. An entertaining and in- 
structive scientific picture.

CRAYFISH AND THE STICKLEBACK 

The crayfish (sometimes called "Crawfish," belongs to a great branch 
called AR-THRO-PO-DA or "jointed foot." Its relatives include crabs, 
lobsters, barnacles, etc. They usually are found in shallow water. A 
fisherman is shown catching a crayfish so that a close-up of it may be 
obtained. Reproduction is by eggs which are attached in a cluster to the 
abdomen of the female. If a crayfish loses a claw, nature soon supplies 
another one. 

The second part of this reel is devoted to the "Stickleback," the fish 
that builds a nest like a bird's nest. This fish is about three inches long. 
It diflfers from other fish in that the female lays only from 50 to 100 eggs 
at a time, wdiile most fish lay eggs by the thousands. The male fish is 
shown, first building the nest and then keeping guard over it. 

Evervbody will enjov this fascinating, educational picture.

PROTECT YOUR FORESTS 

It has been definitely proven that human life is impossible without 
trees. For this and other reasons it is of vital importance to everybody 
to be familiar with the facts concerning forest conservation. This film 
presents these facts dramatically and interestingly. A cross section repre- 
senting a portion of the earth's crust, shows clearly how water, falling as 
rain, normally soaks into the soil and flows down the slopes of bedrock 
to underground reservoirs in the valleys, where it can be pumped to the 
surface for irrigating and for filling reservoirs. The dramatic element is 
supplied by a married couple who camp in the forest. The man thought- 
lessly starts a fire and it gets out of control. From his lookout tower a 
ranger spies the smoke and summons help. All night long the fire rages. 

On the following morning, supervisors fly in an airplane over the 
burning forests to learn the extent of the catastrophe. Some remarkable 
views are shown of a forest fire photographed from the air. It is neces- 
sary to draft thousands of men to fight the fire. The fire is finally con- 
quered, but it has devastated a large region, doing damage that it will 
take at least twenty-five years to remedy. The man who started the fire is 
brought to trial. The judge explains to him the terrible destruction which

MIRACLE MEN 

A man who has lost one leg meets another who is hobbling along on 
two short stumps. A good Samaritan in the shape of Clyde A. Aunger, 
President of the George R. E. Milligan Company, invites them to accom- 
pany him. They drive to the shop where artificial limbs are made. 
Through the eyes of the camera, the observer gets a clear idea of the 
various processes used in manufacturing these unusual objects. Having 
seen Mr. Aunger walking without limping, one is surprised to learn that 
he himself wears an artificial leg. By means of ingenious joints and 
springs, some of these limbs duplicate the movements of a real leg. The 
climax comes when the man with both legs missing walks out of the shop 
on artificial legs of normal length. He even drives his own car, operating 
the clutch, brake and accelerator with ease. The one-legged boy walks 
along the street without any impediment in his gait. A skillful presenta- 
tion of an interesting subject.

THE TRAP DOOR SPIDER 

Famous for its skill and cunning, the trap door spider is one of the 
most interesting of living creatures. This film presents some remark- 
ably clear views of a trap door spider and its nest. A man finds the home 
of a trap door spider and digs it up. The nest is a cylinder about three- 
quarters of an inch in diameter and seven inches long. It is lined 
with silk which the spider spins. The man breaks the nest open and the 
spider drops out. Finding another hole, it proceeds to build a new nest. 
The method it uses to construct the trap door is particularly interesting. 
It is shown with amazing clearness in the picture. The spider is also 
photographed inside the nest. The observer sees plainly how it clings 
to the under side of the door and holds it shut after it has been disturbed. 
How it lies in wait for its victims at the opening of its lair is also illus- 
trated. An extremely entertaining and instructive nature study which 
anyone will enjoy seeing.

BOBBY'S BAD MOLAR 

Frankly intended as an object lesson to teach the importance of caring 
for the teeth properly, this film is an excellent example of how much 
important and interesting" information can be set forth in one reel of film. 

Because he neglects to take care of his teeth, Bobby gets a toothache 
and is sent to the dental hygienist of the school. She examines his teeth 
and finds a decayed molar. With the aid of a large model of a set of 
teeth she explains to Bobby how food lodges in the hollows of the teeth 
and forms an acid which corrodes the teeth. Bobby's mother takes him to 
a dentist. After his teeth have been filled and cleaned, Bobby is asked to 
tell the class what he has learned about keeping teeth clean. He shows 
them the proper way to brush them. While it stresses the care of chil- 
dren's teeth, this film is also of interest to adults.

CLARA CLEANS HER TEETH 

This film is truly of great instructional value to children and also 
adults. The proper care of our teeth is a very important part of the health 
of the human being. This film is constructed around a story of little 
Clara. While playing with her playmates they notice that her teeth are in 
very poor condition and that she experiences a great deal of difficulty 
eating her food and chewing it properly. The teacher of the school, having 
the general welfare of her pupils at heart, provides each child with a 
tooth brush and carefully instructs them as to the proper method of 
brushing the teeth. Clara is very lax in appreciating the value of such 
instruction until the time comes when she must visit a dentist because her 
teeth have become so badly decayed. After her visit to the dentist she is 
mighty proud to note the great improvement in her little mouth and also 
is relieved as there is no longer any pain. You must see this film to appre- 
ciate its value. This is a very forceful story, interesting in its entirety 
and valuable from a standpoint of education.

PICKING PEACHES 

In this ludicrous farce Harry Langdon plays the familiar role of the 
philandering husband who becomes involved in a series of screamingly 
funny situations. He is a salesman in the ladies' shoe department of a 
large store. The sequence in which Harry grabs a customer's leg thinking 
it is a wooden hoisery model, is a gag that always gets a big laugh. There 
are several beach scenes, followed by a beauty contest, giving the Mack 
Sennett bathing girls ample opportunity to display their charms. Most of 
the action in the last part of the story takes place in bathrooms and bed- 
rooms, with Harry falling into the tub, hiding in a bed occupied by a jeal- 
ous husband and going through a string of hilarious antics. A slapstick

BEHIND THE SCENES 

Here is one of the early Chaplin comedies, typical of those which 
started the great comedian on his road to international fame. In it Charlie 
plays the part of the prop man in a cheap vaudeville theatre. His assistant 
is an old man with long whiskers. Together they engage in some hilari- 
ous horse-play, juggling the actors' trunks around and quarreling with 
each other. The troupe includes the Goo Goo sisters, a strong man and his 
fair assistant, Mr. Ham and Miss Fat, who put on a dramatic skit, and a 
tenor singer. There is a lot of squabbling as to who shall occupy the star's 
dressing room, the strongest arguments being presented by the strong 
man in favor of his act. Charlie is drinking beer frOm a pitcher when the 
beautiful Goo Goo sisters appear on the scene. He hides the half full 
pitcher inside his capacious trousers and then bends over to pick up a 
purse dropped by one of the girls. You'll have to see the film to find out 
what happened then. 

The second part of this funny film shows the performance in full 
swing. The strong man tears his tights and sends them out for the prop 
man to mend. Charlie uses them for a scrub-rag. It comes time for the 
strong man's act and he goes in search of his tights. While he is on the 
stage arguing with Charlie, the curtain goes up and catches the strong 
man unawares in his underwear. The comedy closes with Charlie playing 
the hose on everybody, including the audience. Among the most laugh- 
able features of this funfest are the costumes worn by the women (which 
were not intended to be funny when the picture was produced.) Every- 
body, young and old alike, will enjoy this rollicking, slap-stick comedy.

him, but he gets in by a ruse. When Edna's father tries to enter his 
home, Billy's dog, Peter, won't let him pass. He gets a ladder and enters 
through a window, but the dog follows him and snaps at father's coat 
tail. Billy calls the dog off and Dad and the butler throw the boy friend 
out. All this excitement gives father a headache, so he tells Edna to get 
him some powders, but forbids her to buy them from Billy. She disobeys 
him. After she has left the store with the headache powders, Billy dis- 
covers that he has put arsenic in the medicine by mistake. He rushes to 
Edna's house, arriving just in time to knock a powder out of Dad's hand. 
He starts to explain that he made a mistake in mixing the medicine, but 
Edna warns him not to tell Father that she got the powders from him. 
Billy is thrown out again. 

Sneaking to the back of the house, Billy calls to Edna and tells her 
that the headache powders contain poison. During the remainder of the 
picture, Billy and Edna use every scheme they can think of to get the 
powders away from Dad, only to be defeated at each attempt. As a last 
recourse he sends his dog Peter to get the powders, and more side-splitting 
scenes result. This film is sure to keep any audience roaring with laugh- 
ter from start to finish. It is wholesome, logical and commendable in 
everv respect.

highways. But the road bonds did not pass, because Frank and other

SERVING THE COMMUNITY 

"WHY MARY WILLIS WAS ABSENT" is the subtitle of this 
picture. Mary is absent from school because she is sick with typhoid. Her 
friend, Louise, falls asleep in school and dreams that she is in a courtroom. 
The principal is the judge and the jury are the school children. The 
prisoner is brovight in and turns out to be a common housefly, accused 
of causing Mary's sickness. Witnesses testify that they saw the fly on a 
heap of refuse, after which he flew in a bucket of milk, some of which 
was delivered at Mary's house. The fly is asked what he has to say for 
himself. He declares that he is the victim of early environment. Some 
remarkable micro-photographic enlargements are shown, illustrating the 
life cycle of the fly. After this the children, under the principal's super- 
vision, make a sanitary survey of the neighborhood. They finally succeed 
in having all the breeding- places for flies removed. A valuable lesson, 
interestingly presented.

SCHOOL DISCIPLINE 

"WHEN EMILE LOST HIS TEMPER" is the supplementary title 
of this picture. The scene opens in a schoolroom. The teacher has been 
delayed. George takes advantage of the opportunity and starts throwing 
chalk. He hits Emile, who retaliates by throwing an eraser. George 
ducks and the missile breaks the window. The principal calls a meeting 
of the Committee, composed of members of the Student Body. Emile 
agrees to pay for the broken window. George is asked about the chalk 
throwing episode and tries to excuse himself. The counsel decides that 
he should be deprived of some privilege — in this case the use of the school 
tennis court. George is also told to make a written report regarding his 
conduct. He writes a letter admitting that he was at fault. Later he 
talks to Emile, offering to pay half the cost of the window. Hearing of 
this, the principal permits George to use the tennis court again. An in- 
teresting moral lesson.

FALSEHOOD 

Bob loiters on the way to school and is tardy. Asked for an explana- 
tion, he tells the teacher that his Mother is sick, and that he was sent to 
the drug store to get some medicine. The teacher checks on Bob's story 
through the druggist, who tells him that the boy was not there that 
morning. On his way home he sees another boy rescue a small child by 
dragging her from in front of an automobile. On the school grounds Bob 
describes the accident, but tells it as if he himself performed the rescue. 
One of the other pupils saw the same accident and denounces Bob in 
front of his friends. Bob soon acquires the reputation of being a chronic 
liar. Because of this, he is not invited to a party. Very much disturbed, 
he confides in his Mother. She advises him to admit his previous false- 
hoods and to promise always to tell the truth in the future. This he does, 
and is once more accepted as a desirable friend. An interesting object 
lesson that no parent or child should miss.

SCHOOL INDUSTRIES 

"A SCHOOL GOES INTO BUSINESS" is the subtitle of this film, 
which has the same characters as the other pictures of this series. The 
school principal gets some of the pupils together and asks them what can 
be done about hot lunches in the school to replace cold sandwiches. The 
boys say that they can grow vegetables in the school gardens and the girls 
offer to do the cooking. It is decided that the boys can also make the 
chairs, tables and other furniture for a cafeteria. They set to work making 
the equipment while the girls study recipes for balanced meals. Finally 
the work is completed and the cafeteria is opened. Most of the work is 
done by the pupils. Some charges are made to cover the cost of meat 
and other materials that have to be bought from outside. A very inter- 
esting film which shows what can be accomplished by cooperation between 
pupils and school authorities.

PASSION PLAY 

With the action taking place in the Palestine, on the same soil made 
sacred by the Savior's feet, this version of the Passion Play carries the im- 
pression of faithfulness and authenticity. The first reel is confined to views 
showing Jerusalem and its environs as it is today, including the ancient 
battlements still standing and the historic Wailing Wall. It is made un- 
usually clear with the aid of diagrams showing the conformation of Jeru- 
salem's walls and the various gates which were mentioned in the Bible. 

Part Two introduces the story of Jesus. It opens with the proclama- 
tion of the Roman authorities being read in Jerusalem, requiring all Jews 
to return to their birthplaces in order to be tallied for the Roman census. 
Joseph and Mary are shown departing for Bethlehem where Jesus is born 
in the lowly stable. The well known story of the shepherds and the three 
wise men who come with precious gifts for the newly born King is de- 
picted with faithful adherence to the scriptures. This part ends with the 
flight of Mary and Joseph and the infant Jesus into Egypt. 

Part Three shows the return of Jesus and His parents to Jerusalem 
when the boy Christ surprised the wise men of the temple with his learn- 
ing. Then the Savior is shown as a mature man preaching to the multi- 
tudes and healing the sick. In the scenes where Jesus is brought before 
Pontius Pilate to be judged an enormous crowd of people is shown, all 
dressed in the costume of that period. The tenseness of the situations, the 
frenzy of the multitude and the emotional stress of Pilate are well brought 
out. 

In the Fourth and last Part of this picture, Christ is shown on the 
way to Calvary. The distress of his Mother, Mary, his favorite disciple, 
John, and his other faithful followers, is depicted. A touching scene is 
shown in which Jesus, faint from fasting and the effects of repeated 
scourgings, falters and is unable to bear his cross, which is henceforth car- 
ried by Simon of Cyrene. Then comes the great tragedy of the crucifixion, 
followed by the terrible manifestations of darkness and lightning and the 
rending of the temple veil. The body is taken down and is carried to the 
tomb by the faithful disciples. The film closes with the resurrection of 
Christ and His ascention. 

Of all the stories that have ever been told, none can compare with the 
story of Christ. People of all ages, beliefs and tastes will obtain both 
inspiration and benefit from viewing this well produced film.

THE PIED PIPER OF HAMLIN 

Based on the familiar poem by Robert Browning "The Pied Piper of 
Hamlin" follows closely the story as told by the immortal English bard. 
Several verses from the poem are used as titles to the various scenes. The 
town of Hamlin, located close to the River Weser, is horribly infested 
with rats. They "bit the babies in their cradles and ate the soup from the 
cooks' own ladles." The major and his advisors are helpless before the 
demands of the populace that something be done about the scourge. Then 
a mysterious stranger who calls himself "The Pied Piper"' appears before 
the mayor and his corporation. He tells them he possesses the power of 
being able to charm all living creatures and asks them if they are willing 
to pay him one thousand guilders if he rids Hamlin of its rats. They an- 
swer that they would gladly pay 50,000 guilders to have this job accom- 
plished. 

The Pied Piper starts to blow his pipe and all the rats follow him to 
the River Weser where they jump in and are drowned. When the Piper 
asks for his thousand guilders the mayor and the members of the corpora- 
tion laugh at him. They tell him that since the rats arc all dead and can't 
be brought back, they see no reason why they should pay him for luring 
them away. The Piper warns them that if they do not keep their promise 
he may "pipe in a dififerent tune," but they tell him to be on his way. He 
pipes again and this time all the children of Hamlin follow him. He leads 
them to a mountain which opens to receive them. Thus the people of 
Hamlin were punished for not keeping their promise. Both grown-ups 
and children will enjov this film immcnsclv.

THE DEVIL'S TWIN 

"Honest John," a young horse trader, calls on his old friend Solon 
Kemper, who is trying to persuade Uria Hodge to extend his note. Uria 
refuses, and Kemper is forced to sell his cattle at a ruinously low figure. 
Immediately after this transaction has been completed, Blackburn and 
Dilbro demand possession of two hundred cattle, which they claim they 
won from Kemper's son. Bud, in a gambling game. Bud denies this, but 
they present a bill of sale as proof. Bud and his sister appeal to Hodge 
for money, but he demands a deed to the ranch in return for the cash. 
Subsequently John searches Hodges' office and finds a photograph of 
Hodge's son and paper containing tracings of Bud Kemper's name. He 
proves that Blackburn is really Hodge's son and that the bill of sale is a 
forgery. Convinced by this evidence, the Sheriff places Blackburn under 
arrest. This type of "Western" film is always enjoyable.

THE BROKEN LAW 

Burt Morgan, a cowboy off duty, loses the last dollar of his summer's 
salary in a gambling game. He wanders onward, arriving in what looks 
like a peaceful valley somewhere west of the Sierras. His horse stumbles 
and Burt is hurt. Not far away is the lonely hut of an aged Indian 
named Cheeko. Burt's dog runs for help and the Indian shoots at it, 
wounding it in the leg. Cheeko then follows the limping dog and finds 
Burt. He apologizes for shooting the dog, explaining that he mistook it 
for an animal belonging to some men who had been molesting him. Cheeko 
asks Burt to let him nurse the dog back to health, and gives him a bag 
of gold nuggets in payment for it. 

Hal Spar, foreman of the Bar B Ranch, conspires with his hireling, 
Steve Hardy, telling him to force Cheeko to reveal the location of a 
secret gold mine from which he obtains his nuggets. Hardy attacks 
Cheeko and Burt comes to the Indian's rescue. While he is absorbed in 
the ensuing fight he is hit over the head by Hal. They search both men, 
and find on the Indian a map of his gold mine. Thinking Cheeko dead, 
the two crooks move his body to the main trail, where they hope it will 
be found, and that Burt will be blamed. Burt recovers, and continuing on 
his journey, meets Sally Warde, owner of the Bar B Ranch. She has 
fallen from her horse. Burt helps her back to her home. Against the 
protests of her foreman, Sally gives Burt a job on her ranch. 

Hal goes to warn Steve and the two men muss up the Indian's cabin 
to make it look as if someone had searched it. Returning to the ranch,

he tells Burt to dig post holes, but Sally countermands the order. She 
asks Burt to accompany her on a ride. They become confidential, and 
Burt tells her about Cheeko and the fight with the two crooks. He tells 
her he is going to hide the bag of nuggets until the trouble blows over. 

Hal Spar calls on the sheriff and makes several remarks in an attempt 
to make him suspect Burt of doing away with Cheeko. The Sheriff 
rides to the ranch to put Burt under arrest. The cowboys are getting 
ready to stage a race in which Burt is entered. Sally persuades the 
Sheriff to put off the arrest until after the race. She promises him that 
Burt will come back. Secretly she tells Burt to keep on going after the 
race and arranges to meet him later. She tells one of her men to loosen 
the saddle cinches of the Sheriff and his deputies. Burt wins the race, 
and following his boss' instructions, keeps on going. When the Sheriff 
upbraids Sally, she says : "I promised he would come back and he did — 
but he kept right on going." She also tells the Sheriff: "If you want to 
know what happened to that Indian, find Steve Hardy." Sally leaves to 
keep her appointment with Burt. Hal and Steve follow her. 

Anticipating foul work, Burt hides in a tree and surprises Hal and 
Steve, catchng one of them with his lariat. There is a fight which is 
interrupted when Sally comes back and fires her gun. The two crooks run 
away. Meanwhile Cheeko has recovered and has prepared a trap at the 
place indicated by his map, which is really a false lure. He buries a 
can of gunpowder, arranged so that it will explode when he pulls a string. 
He lies in wait, and when Hal and Steve come in search of the mine he 
blows them to fragments. The story ends with Burt exonerated and 
with the two lovers in each others arms. 

Embodying admirably all the elements of a good story, including 
mystery, excitement, suspense and wholesome romance, this film is highly 
recommended for audiences of all kinds and ages.

KILLING THE KILLER 

THE GRAND NATIONAL STEEPLECHASE, 1930 

A REAL RODEO (PENDLETON, OREGON) 

"KILLING THE KILLER" is recognized internationally as one of 
the most remarkable animal pictures ever made. A mongoose, the animal 
made famous by Kipling, engages in a death struggle with a cobra, In- 
dia's most venomous snake. The spectators view every detail of the battle 
from ringside seats. 

"THE GRAND NATIONAL STEEPLECHASE" took place in 1930 
at Aintree, England. So hazardous is this course that out of a large field 
of riders only three were in at the finish. The film contains some beau- 
tiful shots in sloAV motion and in suspended action as well as in regular 
tempo. 

"A REAL RODEO" was made at Pendleton, Oregon, famous for its 
rodeos. In addition to the standard stunts, such as steer roping, bucking 
broncos, and bulldogging there are some new and original feats, including 
driving a bucking steer hitched to a chariot. 

For unusual thrills it would be hard to equal this film.

HOUSES OF THE ARCTICS AND TROPICS 

How human being living under altogether different conditions adapt 
themselves to their environments in building their homes, is brought out 
in this picture, which was produced in cooperation with Harvard Uni- 
versity's Department of Anthropology. Eskimos, inhabiting the bleak 
regions along the North Coast of North American Islands in the Arctic 
sea and the shores of Greenland, have no wood or stone to work with, so 
they make their houses of the material at hand, namely snow. Just how 
this is accomplished is brought out clearly. Drifted snow, packed hard 
by the wind is cut into blocks with an ivory knife. This implement is 
kept in condition by licking it, the saliva freezes instantly, coating the 
ivory with a film of smooth, sharp ice. The blocks of snow are carefully 
cut with tapering edges so as to form a dome, the principle of which was 
discovered in the Western Continent by the Eskimos. The first part of 
this picture closses with some intimate views of eskimo life that are as 
well done as those of that great Eskimo classic, "Nanook of the North." 

The observer is then transported to a vastly different location. The 
Fiji Islands, situated south of the Equator and east of Australia, are warm 
and well watered, teeming with vegetation. Here the houses are con- 
structed of rattan woven like a basket over a framework of wood. This 
frame is covered with bundles of grass which is lashed to the cane by 
means of strips cut from the inner bark of a certain kind of tree. The 
roof is covered with palm leaves sewn to sticks and lashed into place like 
overlapping shingles. A split palm log fastened over the ridge pole com- 
pletes the house and serves as an ornament. For real entertainment and 
unusual educational value this picture is heartily recommended.

GRASS 

Faced with starvation because of the depletion of grass to feed the 
herds on which the people depend for their own sustenance, the entire 
Persian tribe of Bakhtyari, including over 50,000 human beings, travels 
for several hundred miles over rough, forbidden country, bringing with 
them their homes and all their possessions, including over half a million 
head of cattle, sheep, goats, horses and other animals. Crossing a wide and 
treacherous river without bridge or boat, climbing a forbidding, unmapped 
mountain 12,000 feet high, walking barefoot over glaciers and through 
snow drifts, surmounting perpendicular clifts, carrying their babies, old 
people and all their herds with them they finally reach their destination,

TAMING THE TAIGA 

In the southern part of Siberia, opposite the coast of Japan, lives a 
small tribe of forest people called Udes. There are exactly 1327 of them, 
including men, women and children. Their home is in the Ussarian Forest 
bordering the Taiga River. The people look very much like the American 
Indians, thus giving credence to the theory that the Indians originally 
came from Asia. Each family is a separate, independent unit. The work 
done by the men is sharply distinguished from that performed by the 
women. No matter how much she has to do, the wife gets no help from 
her husband. Before they go forth on the hunt, the Udes engage in the 
Shamian rites which are somewhat similar to Indian war dances. One of 
the men is shown tracking and killing a wild boar. He doesn't bother to 
take the animal back with him, however. That is a woman's job. 

In the second reel, the hunter returns to his home. He says to his 
wife, "I killed a boar over there. Go and fetch it." Like a dutiful help- 
mate she gets into a canoe and paddles to the place which her lord and 
master has marked by breaking a sapling double. She skins the boar, cuts 
the usable meat into sections and carries it on her back to the river, where 
she paddles the canoe back home. Next is shown a Ude wedding. The 
Udes sell their furs at a Russian Trading Post, receiving in exchange 
tools, seeds, livestock and other supplies. A meeting is held and a repre- 
sentative is sent to Vladivostock to ask the government officials to supply 
them with horses, cattle, schools and hospitals. The request is granted. 
An extremely interesting studv of an unusual race of people.

THE MASAI 

This picture is a fascinating, authentic study of the Masai, a primitive 
race of people who inhabit the grassy plain lying between the Great Lakes 
of Africa and the Indian Ocean. The Masai are negros with a mingling 
of white blood from the Hamites who probably crossed to Africa from 
Arabia. Though black in color, their Caucasian strain is revealed in their 
narrow noses and thin lips. These people live in small villages and gain 
their sustenance by raising cattle. Their regular diet includes neither 
vegetable products nor meat, being confined to a mixture of milk and cow's 
blood. To obtain this food the Masai, at regular intervals, open veins in 
the necks of their cattle and draw oflf the blood in gourds. This is then 
mixed with milk and is consumed with gusto. In this film are shown 
some extremely interesting, intimate views of the Masai at work and at 
play. A very instructive and entertaining science picture.

WANDERERS OF THE ARABIAN DESERT 

This film depicts in a clear, interesting way the regular, daily life 
which the Arabs or Bedawins live. Famous for their horsemanship, the 
Arabs have developed an exceptional breed of horses known as Arabians. 
The Bedawins are also appreciative of the debt they owe to the camel. 
One scene shows an Arab straining water through his shirt before 
oflfering it to his camels. Another interesting sequence pictures a camel 
loaded down with the household belongings of an Arabian family, includ- 
ing two small children and a bird in a cage. The home life is also shown. 
Women make butter with a churn consisting of a goat skin suspended 
so it can be shaken back and forth. Spinning, weaving, grinding grain 
and other operations are carried on by equally primitive methods. Musi- 
cians playing on their one-stringed lutes and their shepherd's pipes are 
also shown. A study of strange humanity that is both instructive and 
entertaining. ^ ^^^^

THE MONGOLS OF CENTRAL ASIA 

Mongolia is located in the very heart of Asia, between China and 

Siberia. Since this is the original home of the horse, the Mongols have, 

for a long time, been fine horsemen. An unusual scene shows several men 

catching horses with loops attached to long poles. Mounted on their small 

wirey ponies a large number of them engage in an exciting race. Several 

methods of transportation are used. Yaks haul logs in the same manner 

used by American Indians; Camels carry heavy loads; primitive wheeled 

vehicles are also employed; Sheep provide food, clothing and shelter;. 

Wool is made into felt by an interesting method. The Mongol yurt. or 

movable house, is made of a collapsible wooden frame covered with felt. 

Inside this house the family is snug and comfortable. This is an unusually 

interesting and instructive study of human manners and customs that

Sumatra is one of the largest islands in the Malay Archipelago. That 
the people there differ widely in customs and modes of living is shown by 
this unusual film. One of the opening scenes shows Menankabau. a large 
village. A rice field flashes on the screen and a number of native farmers 
are shown planting the rice shoots in soft mud and later on harvesting it 
with hand sickles. Other processes, such as threshing, winowing and 
grinding arc done by very primitive methods. One of the most interesting 
of the scenes shows a monkev which is trained to climb a cocoanut tree 
and twist off the cocoanuts. throwing them down to its master. Another 
exceptional sequence shows a Sumatran wedding celebration. The bride 
does not attend the actual ceremonv. which consists of the reading of a 
passage from the Koran. .\ highly instructive picture which is also very 
entertaining. C_ i -d i

THE FOREST PEOPLE OF CENTRAL AFRICA 

In the forests of Central Africa dwell the pygmies, who arc among 
the smallest and most primitive people. This film enables the observer to 
pay a visit to the pygmies, watching them intimately while at work and 
at play, and learning a great deal about their interesting customs. The 
average height of a full grown pygmie is only four feet and eight inches. 
They are lighter skinned than the negroes. How they shoot game with 
their poisoned arrows and catch fish in weirs is clearly shown. Some in- 
teresting views of Bantu-speaking negroes are also shown. With the 
simplest and crudest equipment these men smelt ore, with an open fire, 
and the native blacksmiths shape the metal into Aveapons by means of 
stone hammers. The women strip the inner bark off certain kinds of 
trees and pound it into cloth for their garments. A very interesting and 
entertaining storv of strange customs.

THE BATTAK OF SUMATRA 

The Battak live in the valleys of the northwestern part of the Island 
of Sumatra, which is one of the largest in the Malay Archipelago. This 
picture gives a clear idea of the customs, habits and modes of living of 
these interesting people. The Battak belong to the Mongloid racial family 
with mixture of negroid and negrito stock. The men and women chew 
l)etel nuts incessantly and blacken their teeth, believeing that only ani- 
mals should have white teeth. Using no other implements except sharp- 
ened sticks, long rows of men and women cultivate the ground for plant- 
ing rice. At the rice mill, the women pound rice with crude implements. 
Others sit in the shade weaving. Decked in their long robes and large, 
ornate silver ornaments, the women dance sedately to the music of quaint 
native instruments. A very entertaining study of an interesting race of 
people which is well worth seeing.

BOATS AND FISHERMEN OF THE ARCTICS AND TROPICS 

As the title implies, this film visualizes the methods used by people 
of widely different climes in building their boats and in catching fish. 
Living where wood is scarce, the Eskimo constructs his boat of sealskin, 
tightly stretched over a framework of driftwood. In their Kayaks, or 
skin canoes, the Eskimos perform some remarkable stunts, rolling com- 
pletely over in the water and hurdling- each other's crafts. In contrast, 
the Fijiians. living on their forested tropical islands, carve their canoes 
from tree trunks. Larger boats are made of planks. The Fijiians fish 
with nets. A ring of men and women stand in the water and beat it with 
sticks to drive the fish into the net. Cutting back to the Arctic Regions, 
the film shows how the Eskimo catches fish by dangling an ivory lure 
through a hole in the ice and spearing the fish as they come to investigate. 
An educational film which is unusuallv interesting.

AMERICA GOES OVER 

This film is one of the official films of the United States Army Signal 
Corps taken under action and service conditions in France. At the begin- 
ning is a rare and unique sequence. It shows the actual sinking of several 
allied vessels as photographed by the Germans. The films were taken 
from captured German U-boats. Then follows a closeup of President Wil- 
son signing a request for Congress to declare war on April 2, 1917. The 
audience is then whisked to France where the camera catches a British 
detachment returning from a raid through no man's land with German 
prisoners. Pictures are also shown of the French and Italian armies in 
action. Methods used to train recruits for the U. S. Army are illustrated. 
The film closes with an inspiring picture of the American naval ships on 
the way to join the British Fleet. An excellent historical subject.

LINDBERGH (The Epic Trans-Atlantic Flight) 

LINDBERGH ABROAD AND IN WASHINGTON 

LINDBERGH CAPTURES NEW YORK 

LINDBERGH IN MEXICO 

Composed of a series of news-reel pictures which have since become 
important history, this film tells in the graphic language of the screen the 
story of Charles Lindbergh and his epoch-making flight across the At- 
lantic. At the beginning are shown several remarkable pictures of the re- 
peated disasters which preceded Lindbergh's take-off. The wreck of 
Fonck's Sikorsky plane is shown in flames. Nungesser and Coli departing 
from Paris on the flight from which they never returned, are also repre- 
sented. Despite all these disasters, the twenty-five years old Lindbergh 
takes off. He arrives in Paris and is greeted bv an excited throng. The 
remainder of the film is devoted to the unprecedented ovations which the 
hero received in Belgium, England, Washington and New York. Lind- 
bergh's historic non-stop flight to Mexico City is also depicted. No one. 
young or old, should fail to see this inspiring picture.
